Hi team,

We have just purchased a new Cisco 2921 router for Call manaegr express. The router has ISM-SRE-300-K9 module installed on Slot 0 for Cisco unity express. We have initially verified that the module status was fine yesterday. But after we rebooted the router for some other purpose, we see some issue with the ISM-SRE-300-K9 module, it is not being detected. inv

The SRE module is being shown as unknown. I have again reloaded the router, but the issue is not yet fixed. Could you please help me fix this issue?

There is only 1 IOS file (c2900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-4.M4.bin) on the router. So, the router booted with the correct image only. I have verified the link you have provided also.

Does "service-module ism [ISM/Interface] status" return anything?

As the device is not detecting IM-SRE module, there is noting related to ISM. "service-module ism" itself is not working. It was working yesterday when the module was detected. ?

  Embedded-Service-Engine  cisco embedded service engine module

Also, "sh int desc" is not displaying ISM interfaces. Yesterday it did. int desc

Hi Swati,

I think your Module is dead and need replacement. raise an TAC case and see if RMA ia possible.

If a reseat doesn't fix it I would contact TAC for a hardware issue.
